ODOT to host open houses about commuter rail

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Ohio Department of Transportation has scheduled three public open houses this week to share updates about development of Greater Cincinnati's first commuter rail line – Oasis Rail Transit.

The content of each meeting will be the same. Meeting dates and locations are: 

6-8 p.m. Tuesday, R.G. Cribbett Center, 5903 Hawthorne Ave., Fairfax

11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Taft Center at Fountain Square (U.S. Bank Building), 425 Walnut St., Downtown

6-8 p.m. Wednesday, Miami Township Civic Center, 6007 Meijer Drive, Miami Township

The proposed commuter rail would be 17 miles from downtown Cincinnati to Milford.

Much of the track alignment would use publicly-owned rail right-of-way and existing freight lines. In other places, new tracks would be built to complete necessary connections. For planning purposes, the Oasis corridor is divided into four segments which will be constructed in phases:

Segment No. 1: Riverfront Transit Center to the Montgomery Inn Boathouse (1 mile)

Segment No. 2: The Boathouse to U.S. 50 in Fairfax (7 miles)

Segment No. 3:  U.S. 50 in Fairfax to the Ancor area in Anderson Township, slightly northeast of Newtown (4 miles). It might run alongside parts of the relocated Ohio 32 or an alternate alignment.

Segment No. 4: Ancor area in Anderson Township to Milford (5 miles)

The public can arrive at any time during the meetings to review and discuss information presented on a series of boards staffed by project team representatives.

An open-forum public comment session will be at 12:30 p.m. during the daytime meeting and at 7 p.m. during the evening meetings.

An interactive, Internet-based tool will be available at the meetings through which the public can provide additional feedback and communicate to project planners their priorities for improving travel and accessibility in the Greater Cincinnati region.

This tool will also be accessible online at www.EasternCorridor.org beginning Tuesday and will remain available until Jan. 3.
